The English Football Association (FA) were set to announce their first two inductions into the Premier League Hall of Fame this week. However, that ceremony has been postponed until further notice due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak across Europe. In February, league officials revealed that it would begin honouring stars of the competition’s 28-year history in a US-style Hall of Fame process with two new inductees each year. But, reports in the Daily Mail claim that Thursday’s event in London has now been cancelled as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and Newcastle striker Alan Shearer were thought to be firm favourites to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame this week.
